TOUCH THE SKY by Hillsong United

“What treasure waits within Your scars
This gift of freedom gold can’t buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again”

The first time I heard it, I fell in love with it. It’s been over a week and I still can’t get this song outside my head. It’s a very relaxing track to tune into. And the lyrics? Definitely heartwarming. Touch the sky is a very humbling song. It reminds me how unworthy I am of God’s love and mercy, and of how great His grace is to a sinner like me. It is in Christ and Christ alone that I found freedom. It is when I fall on my knees that I touch the sky. For where I am nothing, God is everything.

“God said, ‘No, it doesn’t matter who you are,’ and because of that, we don’t have to try and elevate ourselves in order to find God. We find God from a position of surrender.” -Ptr. Houston (Hillsong Church)
